We can expect Ertiga facelift to arrive on Indian shores soon after around September-October period.
The facelift Ertiga get some revisions to the design like a new three slate front chrome grille, restyled front bumper and chrome inserts around the circular fog lamps. Side profile will remain moreover same as current Gen model except for the new alloy wheels (wheel cap for the mid variants) and revised OVRMs with LED indicators to make it more premium.

The 2015 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is expected to house same set of engines i.e. 1.4L petrol and 1.3L diesel engines. The former produces 94bhp power and 130Nm of torque while the other is rated to deliver 89bhp power and 200Nm of max torque.
According to reports, the company is also planning to introduce much bigger 1.6L diesel engine with facelifted Ertiga. The engine is good enough to deliver 112PS of max power. Maruti Suzuki might also boast better fuel figures, however rumors around suggesting that it might deliver 25.2 KMPL of mileage of diesel trim.
Reports also suggest that an AMT is also expected to be equipped with either of the engines but there is no concrete evidence or official confirmation yet. With these upgrades, Ertiga will be expecting to retain its good sales performance against Honda Mobilio and newly launched Renault Lodgy.
